Cambodia and Thailand to jointly tackle PM2.5 pollution on border

The Burapha Army Command and Sa Kaeo provincial administration have joined hands with Cambodian authorities in tackling PM2.5 air pollution on the border between Sa Kaeo province in Thailand’s eastern region and Cambodia Banteay Meanchey province.

PM2.5 refers to dust particles that are 2.5 micrometres or smaller in diameter and can be easily inhaled. Long-term exposure to such fine particles has been linked to many chronic diseases, including acute lung and heart problems.

Burapha Commander Maj-General Theppitak Nimit said on Friday that a joint meeting was recently held in Sa Kaeo as a follow up on the meeting of the Thai-Cambodian Regional Border Committee that focused on solving the common environmental problems of the two countries.
